Ok, I don’t know how many days that it’s been but I haven’t exactly been a model citizen under quarantine, because I’ve been out shooting watermelon that the elk then eat. And I’ve been driving around doing a little food shopping. Home made (from scratch) pizza for dinner last night. But work is slow. I think that we pulled in $20K into the consulting business which will make everyone happy. It serves to keep the lights on, but clearly won’t buy many toys. And yes, he with the most toys still dies, but dies happier than without toys.
A friend who lives locally, former USAF Raven, then transitioned up to F-15’s, left the service and flew for United Air Lines before he moved to the Arizona Highlands, came over for dinner, with his wife. BBQ’d tri-tip. They brought salad and rolls. Not precisely a quarantine.
The neighbor with the Hughes 500D flew over, buzzing the mine. He’s commuting from the Phoenix Valley, not precisely quarantined, but he is social distancing. You can fault him for a great many things (like not letting me be his pilot) but he is keeping his distance.
I’m giving a lot more thought to menu now. Lots of frozen animal and bird flesh, plenty of vegetables. Squeezing lemons for lemonade make me think of Senator (up)Chuck Schumer and I squeeze every drop of precious liquid out of them as I squeeze – and squeeze. Fox News is not on all day. Maybe it should be, but it’s not healthy for me to listen to it these days.
On the bright side, if COVID-19 forces Planned Parenthood to close for two weeks, the virus will have saved more lives than it has taken.
